  1. I'll get that penny back when I buy more peanuts at the Bulk Barn . If I buy 10 lbs. of salted peanuts @ $2 per lb. they charge 13% hst ......so I buy unsalted (no tax) & add a little salt ( .0001 cent) at home ! It pays to be a math genius ! 😉
  2. Thanks for that info Fishguy . I don't know how some can get away with snubbing the regs so much ...With my luck I would get nabbed for having 121 minnows ...... "Not worth the stress" .....exactly !
  3. I read a thread about a guy using a bow to shoot salmon while others were tossing lures beside him....turns out the guy is aboriginal & has rights to use a bow ... We have no way of knowing , and of course , it would be a waste of time for the MNR ....the guy doesn't need to show his status card to anyone other then the MNR. Maybe the minnows will be salted down for chum bait , etc. ($$$)
  4. It's a "before and after" picture of a carp Tony ..... I didn't release it fast enough.... After browsing the www ,skeletal images of carp , I'm quite sure that "UGLIness"s is a regular carp ..... I'll ask Bruce .......
  5. Lots of bait fish in there , maybe the carp are feasting on them . Funny how clear the eye is on that fish which is probably a carp , but the bottom jaw seemed a little too high , reminding me of a grass carp . An older gent walking his dog saw it and also thought it may be a grass carp . He fishes there all year and likes carp fishing as well . Mike Pike ......hope you are still with us .....
  6. It was so nice to fish today without the blazing heat ! I packed up the carp gear & headed to Rennie . First spot ...2 hrs. and no action (zero) ! Moved to another spot ...chummed with oat/cream corn/maize packbait with some scatterings of maize ....4o minutes later , the alarm screemed & away we go !! It went way over to my right into weeds ...couldn't budge it ...let off a little slack ....it came out & headed to the center ...felt like a whopper ....strong fish ! Wanted to weigh it but my scale flunked out ....some where in the double digits between 10 & 99 lbs . It wa
  7. Hit up the Dollar Store for some cheapo goodies .....tons of Halloween stuff as usual ....got a scary plastic jack-o-lantern and some tea lights . ....no summer yard stuff left , no cheap corn , no cheap coffee .....but I got my oatmeal cookies !! After checking out my bill slip , I noticed I was charged an eco fee on the tea lights because they have a small flat battery ..... it cost me an extra 1 cent !! I'm so happy I helped clean up the planet today ! .....that fee is just the baby toe in the doorway ....next will be the big toe , then the foot .....then .....along came
  8. This happened (on a smaller scale) to my step father.. a 45 gal barrel of wine in the basement (new house) blew out one of the stringer boards because a grape skin plugged the plastic air exhaust hose that went into a jar of water . He was at work when he got the call that wine was running across the basement into the drain .....He "flew" home from work ( 10 minutes) and was able to save about 30 gal. ....put into demi-johns . ....sweetest smelling basement in town !
  9. About 10,000 people showed up ....crawling on their bellies ...helping with the clean up ....
  10. ....like a red river gushing down the street ..... Will this cause polluted waterways ....or disinfect the sewer system " So sad ..... 😩 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJoR08KPJNU
  11. Lets hope our "liberal" media that doesn't believe in free speech (aka fake news) doesn't shut down the YouTube video . With the backing of the NDP the our esteemed leader thinks his "majority" government can pass any legislation they wish ..... it ain't going to happen without an ugly fight ! ....just saw this come up on YTube .... the ndp is in a great position to get their perks from the perps now ....and the libs will bend over...... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjYF5NaEmF0
  12. Nice catch ! The water conditions look good for fishing there .
  13. I see no response to my post ..... hope y'all don't think I'm against a cull or a proper legal hunt for these birds . The word here is "ethical" ....leaving birds to rot will only cause it all to be shut down . Keep our environment clean ......simple ...
  14. They are fish eating machines ! I watched 2 of them eating dozens of perch in a marina .....saw one take small pike and trout at Port Dal . If they are left to rot we know who will be showing pictures and protesting with the signs , etc. What happened to the egg spraying program ? The problem is these birds live for 20+ years ! We have been talking about the cormorants for many years here .....I was trying to find a picture I took at Port Dalhousie harbour about 10-15 years ago ....thousands of corms that turned the harbour black ! ...can't find the photo ... ...An
  15. My main concern is the disposal of these birds . There are so many "unethical" anglers & hunters these days ...like the ones who leave their trash ..... There will be a big backlash (happening now) from various non hunting groups , so time will tell if the cormorant hunting will last ..... This is the first comment I read , written by a hunter ..... I was always in favour of the MNR culling cormorants since they would be properly disposed ..... lets see where it goes from here .... " I honestly had to check the date when I read this to make sure it was not A
